The Bengals' playoff position is decided with one game to go in the regular season. They're locked into the lowest seed, meaning they'll play every game on the road.
Their opponent has yet to be decided, and they could have something to say about it on Sunday when they finish at home against the Baltimore Ravens.
Cincinnati (9-6) clinched the final wild card spot with a 13-10 win in Pittsburgh on Sunday. Baltimore (10-5) won the AFC North title.
Currently, the Bengals would open in New England. They also could play at Houston or Denver, depending upon how the final games play out. And if the Ravens win on Sunday and New England loses, the Bengals would wind up facing the Ravens in Baltimore in the first round.
